Matrix Model for Determining the Need for Skills Training = Matriksmodel vir die bepaling van die behoefte aan Vaardigheidsopleiding.
Cilliers, Gerrie J.
This manual contains guidelines for individual organizations to follow in using a matrix model to determine and monitor their needs regarding nonformal skills training. Chapter 1 provides background to the development of the matrix model and the manual in the Republic of South Africa. It discusses the matrix, an instrument focusing on groups of skills and various aspects of training, and its uses. Chapter 2 contains definitions of concepts to ensure uniformity and comparability when industries or organizations complete the matrix. Definitions of "skill" and "nonformal skills training" are followed by descriptions of the six basic job categories identified for implementing the matrix. The concept of entrance requirements is addressed. The following broad categories of occupational skills are distinguished: handling, technological knowledge, thinking, and human. The final sections list criteria regarding which level of skills to apply to the categories of skills and questions to apply to each aspect of skills training. Chapter 3 provides instructions for completing the matrix, including who completes the matrix, situation and date, particulars on job category, scale points, and graphs. Chapter 4 addresses interpretation in three different situations: current, ideal, and a scenario for the future. An example is provided of the analysis of a matrix. Appendixes include a completed matrix and examples of graphs. An Afrikaans-language version is provided. (YLB)
